Card of the Day-6 August 2017

Lightning (Power) and Spring Equinox (Rebirth)

What powerful energies seem to be present today! Perhaps it deals with this upcomingphotomania-498d8ccceded9b18d4be2f716c43e405 Full Moon/ Eclipse on Monday. Today we are being told to retake our power. Stop littling yourself and shrinking away from fear or for the sake of others. You have much to offer the world but you can’t do any of that if you’re not allowing your authentic self to shine like the star that you are! (Maybe that’s just my Leo sun talking ;))
photomania-9293ca2a8d49fc37d1cdabd181031336If you reclaim your power then it will feel like a rebirth–a renewal. It can feel like you’re a new person but you aren’t. You are simply whole. You’re not denying an aspect of yourself to please others. I know. I have done this on numerous occasions and have only now reclaimed my own power and it can be hella scary! I constantly worry about what others will think, if I may lose someone because they don’t agree with my path but that’s their problem. Not mine. I cannot masquerade as someone I’m not simply to make them feel better.
So, my friends, focus today on reclaiming your personal power, what that means to you, and have it can help you sort of go through a cycle of renewal and newness. What are some things you can do daily to help acheive this new stage? No one said it was easy but it’s worth it.

Knowledge

Life in and of itself is a learning experience. We’re constantly learning, even if we aren’tphotomania-743de9c3d63045e24785bdffeead1299 reading a book, which is what people generally associate knowledge with. Of course, it’s a method of learning–but only one. That painful break-up serves us a point to learn. That beautiful baby nestled in our arms is likewise a great teacher. Even more subtle, energy itself teaches us as we learn valuable information simply by attuning in.
Today is all about recognizing those various soruces of knowledge and to know that we are all students in life. This lessens the pressure to be on top of everything at all times as well as serves as a vessel for healing.
Take time today to even honor this by actively seeking to learn something new. Find a new recipe and create a delicious lunch. Grab a book and read. Sit beneath a tree and ask that it let you learn about it energetically. Even watching YouTube videos can be educational–what a day and age we live in! 🙂

 

“Learning comes naturally for me and through actively attuning to the energy of All, knowledge is mine to behold. I know what it is I need to know, when the appropriate time comes.”–The Autumn Witch

Card of the Day-4 August 2017

2 of Chalices and Queen of Pentacles

These cards would NOT let me shuffle them properly then these two flipped over without photomania-d904c4c9529b60a682e202fc389815f6me drawing them so needless to say, Spirit WANTED this message! Lol.

A partnership or relationship may present itself today. Conversely, if you are already in a relationship then today may be a day which only strengthens and deepens your connection and bond to one another. There’s respect and equal exchange of energies and love in a relationship. You can have it all, My Darling. A loving relationship, a strong friendship, a respectable business partnership, and success. There’s an union of two individuals possible but it’s your decision whether you seize the opportunity or not.

photomania-e5cc1fe3cc9a448fe68e7acb973db01bI usually have a quite longer write-up but today’s cards seem very much direct. I looked at them and immediately knew precisely what they were talking about. And ya’ll the Queen of Pentacles is very Venus for me right now and I have no idea why. I’ll go with it lol.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Card of the Day-2 August 2017

The 7 of Wands and 9 of Swords (Jumper) photomania-69cdd936c22b84cf4543c55d9e452e00

You may feel guarded and defensive today—with rightful cause. There’s a heaviness that weighs upon your mind that has been haunting you for quite some time. Maybe it’s an issue that has even crept into your very nightmares. It’s painful and tormenting as you may feel hopeless and alone. This could be caused by you or another person. More than likely it’s a deep-rooted issue finally coming to light—or resurfacing. One that is going to require every last ounce of will, creativity, and mental power to release. Prepare to tackle it head-on instead of sweeping it back underneath the rug where it will only fester and plague you further.

photomania-41ae1fa6f1392689d460e8249c83458cTrue transformation isn’t easy and takes time. It’s a process—not a once and you’re done event. There’s some energy building but it’s time to conquer your fear. It’s time to heal. It’s important to remember that you are never alone. Spirit is always there, awaiting your call for help. Just as your spirit guides, ancestors, and angels. They can’t help unless you ask. Sometimes we become so swept up in our mundane, hectic, and chaotic lives that we become disconnected from Spirit and whenever this happens, we do end up with a feeling that we are the only ones who must tackle our problems. We begin to feel scared and isolated. Whereas when you shift back into remembering that you have such a large spiritual support system, you feel empowered and full of love and confidence. It’s a significant shift.

This is your call to finally heal. Transform, little caterpillar. You’ve been suffering for long enough—perhaps longer than you should’ve. Rise up, stand your ground, and assert yourself. Creativity may be needed but you can do it. If you feel like this issue is too ingrained, ask for help in releasing and healing from it. Remember, it’s a process and you may need to repeat whatever it is you need to do a couple of times before it really takes hold. That’s okay. So long as the work is finally being done. It’s time to let go. You’ve been holding on for far too long. Heal. Transform. Carry on.

Sisters of the Seasons

Today we are reminded that everything has a natural cycle which starts from the conception to the harvest/completion then rests before beginning anew once more. A perfect reminder of Divine Timing. Recently we began planning our goals and may have even started putting them into action but we may need to be reminded that if we force something to happen, if we strive and begin to force, we may restrict it from manifesting. Instead we must allow for movement. Room for our goals to manifest organically. This is the natural order of all. As humans we can be quite impatient (guilty here!) but 20170713_060654-1everything goes by Divine Timing. Spirit will bring your manifestations into your life at the right moment—not too soon and not too late.

This is just a gentle reminder to breathe. We ourselves go through cycles of change as well so take some time today as well to note where you are in your own personal seasons. Are you having your spring where everything is beginning to grow? Perhaps you are having your own autumn where your goals planted in the actual spring are about ready for harvest? You could be having your own winter where instead there’s a need for reflection and contemplation? Or even summer where everything is just in bloom and you are basking in all that is manifesting within your life? I remember Flora Sage on her CharmingPixieFlora Youtube Channel talking about this a while back but unfortunately the video is no longer available otherwise I would link to it because it was fabulous.

Anyways, the meaning today is sort of two-fold. 1) Remember that everything is in Divine Timing and that it’s the natural cycle of the earth. Therefore, while it’s good to work towards a goal and have determination and really strive for it, you mustn’t force it. This only restricts it. Instead allow the goal to manifest organically. Allow room for the energy to flow. 2) Our own lives embody this cycle of change and growth. Reflect on what season your personal life would be in right now and ask how you can use that to assist you in your goals. Remember you can’t skip a season no matter how hard you may want to. Everything has it’s natural course with each season and stage in life being just as necessary as the next. So when you finally reach that harvest season when all your goals and work are reaching completion, don’t just jump into the next project. Allow some time to contemplate, reflect, and meditate on what’s happened. Allow some down time to chill out beforehand—even if for just a day.

Brightest of Blessings,

The Autumn Witch

Card of the Day-11 July 2017

This past full moon was a wonderful opportunity to reflect and take an honest look at what was no longer serving us so that we may release it in order to continue forward on 20170711_100243-1our paths and in our lives. We set goals and intentions that we hope to accomplish within the next few months which wouldn’t be necessarily as easy to accomplish should we have continued carrying that heavy load we were still carrying from the past.

As the work week begins and we start getting back into the humdrum of daily tasks and whatnot, we’re being gently reminded to reflect on our goals, our reasoning behind why we want them, and what we must bring into our lives to achieve them. We may find ourselves grumbling about how hard this is going to be or even doubting ourselves—thus wanting to return to the very things we released since that is what we are comfortable with. While this might be tempting, it isn’t the way. Reflect on what root issue is making you feel this way and how instead you can work to shift that mindset. Also, remind yourself of your goals, your reason why, and your plan. How are you going to do this? That way, when those self-doubting thoughts do arise, you can easily combat them because you CAN do this because you have a plan!

Our egos like to bite at us, belittling and scaring us. Meanwhile, our spirit is what gently supports and reminds us that we deserve all the abundance, happiness, and love in the world. We can do anything if we truly have the will and the desire. Just know, if it’s for your highest good then it will manifest.

So, just take some time and really reflect. Yesterday may have been an emotional day in which we got deep into our heart chakras and allowed our emotions to run a bit more freely than normal. Now is time to get back into our minds a bit. It is only through the unification and balance of mind and heart, ego and spirit, that we are able to achieve our goals, dreams, and desires.

 

Blessed Be.

The Autumn Witch

Card of the Day- 10 July 2017

The Knight of Chalices

Emotions are flowing again as we’ve grown more in touch with ourselves and our inner selves recently. For me, this was the main topic during the Full Moon. How was I denying love and emotional connections and how would opening my heart help aid in the 20170709_225708-1manifestation of my goals and dreams? It was some very heavy duty stuff, in all honesty.

Returning to the card, we may have been blocking or denying ourselves an emotional experience due to fear. We’re being told to relax and instead of focusing so much within our minds, allow ourselves to also be led by our hearts. The Capricorn Full Moon may have brought a lot of logical thinking to the forefront and this card is trying to balance that back out. A unification of mind and emotion, head and heart, is needed. This may manifest as either an opportunity or person coming into our lives that will have some sort of emotional impact. If a new relationship has been a goal of yours then make sure to pay attention! They may cross your path soon enough.  If we remain within our heads and restrict the flow then we may miss out. It’s a time to allow some room for manifestation, open our hearts, and simply go with the flow. Allow yourself to tune into your intuition, be open to love and emotional connections, and simply follow your heart. Sometimes the best things in life are felt and not clearly understood. Sometimes we must lead with our hearts.
